"I joined to get fitter, more confident, and learn to defend myself. Everyone is so friendly and decent. It is a versatile martial art with very real benefit!" 

-Tristan-, Alton

"I was introduced to Alton Jitsu Club through a workmate, and was nervous at first because I hadn't done a martial art before. 

However, the friendly group and Sensei Tom's supportive teaching style meant I quickly settled in and started learning.

In very little time I had visibly lost weight, improved strength and grown in self-confidence. It's great to see the club growing in popularity!

-Frank- , Alton

"I live in Froyle near Alton and I used to attend the old club in Alton

It is fantastic that this club has opened in Alton again as I love being able to train more often and it is ideally located for me"
